Dear Beholden Level1Techs Administrators and Owners,

I come to ye bearing all that is good and Holy in these great lands. For you are wise and worthy, whereas I am not. But, prithee, I beg ye listen to my cries and woes!

We have a great community, full of subject matter experts. Often, when troubleshooting, this requires one to engage in more than a handful of replies with a single entity. We, dear owners, become accosted by the vile Discourse development team:

When approached, the unkempt, loathsome, distrustful Discourse developers place the burden of harassment on ye, precious owners!

However, knowing this to be the case (because I know the detestable scum, inside and out, and I know their thoughts and blighted ways), I believe I have discovered the culprit. Behold!

./spec/components/composer_messages_finder_spec.rb

Might ye bless us, once more, o’faithful, might ye rid our community of this wretched curse, so that we might engage, truly engage, in pure discourse?

I humbly thank thee.

Sir Valiant AdminDev IV

I too have grown to despise the Discourse overlords and their drive for inclusivity where it is not warranted/needed.

If we could exterminate such feature I’d be forever grateful

For taking away features like, oh, I don’t know, not scrolling to the reply I myself just wrote in a 120 reply thread whereI am half way through at best?

I see you did not just believe, but embraced the vision

The Vision

Jokes aside, they are a little stuck up.
It is a good product they have, but just barely good. Like 65/100 “good”.

You know, I really like XenForo 2
like a lot
less stuck up dev team
but they make you pay so… lol

I got new glasses recently, so I def. did embrace the vision, probably a bit to much
I was naive

Just the fact we are going to have users have TL’s but the users cannot see where they stand to get upto the next TL shows how stuck up they are. Should be completely transparent and is willingly chosen not to be.

It should be optional. The admin should be able to configure everything.

Agreed but with discourse you have to convince the devs to crawl before they can walk. Just having transparency would be a step-up. The whole ignore thing where they were going to hardcode a value instead of allowing admin setting the value shows they really don’t trust their admin base.
